I don't believe Americans would kill or injure a single muslim if the muslims would stop killing and injuring others and be willing to live peaceably in the world.

I think you are just guessing, svirk. How do you know that the god of the muslims and the God Jesus cried out to are the same? How do you know Jesus will not be coming back? Just because it has never happened does not mean that it never will happen. events occur in this universe every day that have never happened before. Heck. Men just landed a space craft on a comet billions of miles away. That never happened before. I expect that when Jesus returns you will be surprised but you shouldn't be. It's not like he didn't say he was coming.

I believe that the gubermint has been making the same mistake for years when it comes to estimating how tax increases /decreases will affect over all revenues. They always seem to use static baseline situations; eg. If we are getting x billions now and we increase the rate by 2% we will get X billion + 2% and that will meet our financial requirements. They fail to consider that the base line of x billions will be negatively affected by increasing the rate and that therefore the net will likely be less that the x billions they now have. This has been shown repeatedly over many cycles yet for some reason progressives just can't seem to grasp the simple truth that if you want less of something increase the tax on it and if you want more of something reduce the tax on it. Lower tax rates almost always produce greater revenues while higher tax rates almost always produce lower revenues. I hope the new congress can understand this principal and use it to the advantage of the country. I won't hold my breath though.

While Gubmint doesn't creat jobs they can take some actions that will result in the creation of jobs. First thing they should do is get gubmint out of the way so commerce can move forward. They can and should review and remove useless regulations of which there are thousands. I'm sure if you are in business you can think of a few. They can adopt a fiscal policy that will be in effect for more than 12 months. 5-6 years is a good target for fiscal policy durability. They can get out of the business of business and leave that up to the business community. Gubmint has not demonstrated any good ability at operating business efficiently. That's for starters. What say you?
Did you smarten up enough to vote for Romney in 2012?
About 2 million fewer voters voted for 0bama in 2012 than in 2008. He was really reelected by fewer voters supporting Romney in 2012 than supported McCain in 2008. The hard truth is that he was actually reelected by conservative/Republican voters not supporting their candidate because he wasn't conservative enough. We risk the same thing happening again in 2 weeks. That will be devastating.
I looked up Methane (referred to by Pete1215) on Google and much to my surprise I learned that Al Gorezerra America is reporting that Methane leaking from Hydraulic Fracturing is wiping out any environmental benefits gained from the increased production of natural gas. Imagine those evil gas companies just letting gas leak into the atmosphere where it causes global warming….er….climate change.
